Take the Pledge
I pledge to learn my hepatitis C status by getting tested.
Up to 5 million Americans have hepatitis C and 75 percent don’t know they have it.
I pledge to talk to my healthcare provider about hepatitis C and its risk factors.
For many people, hepatitis C can be cured, unlike other infectious diseases.
I pledge to talk with my Baby Boomer family members and friends about hepatitis C and getting tested.
Baby boomers (those born between 1945 and 1965) make up 82 percent of all people with hepatitis C.
I pledge to raise awareness about hepatitis C and its risk factors.
Hepatitis C can affect anyone, but there are many common misperceptions about the disease, including the belief that it only affects people who use drugs.
